Chara vs. Athas vs. Ananda

We love the name ’Joy’ and were planning on giving it to our daughter, who will arrive pretty soon. Our next-door neighbors (we are very good friends, and they have a little boy named Hudson) decided to name THEIR daughter Joy at the last minute. They chose to keep the gender a surprise, as well as their planned names (we’ve been keeping our fav. name a secret too), so we totally weren’t expecting this to happen. Nonetheless, we have chosen still to name her Joy - just in another language. We think it’s creative and a bit unique and cute, especially since she and the other Joy will most likely be close friends and see each other a lot. We don’t want the girls to have the same first name mostly for the reason that it will get confusing,etc. We just don’t really know which one of these versions of Joy to use, so if you could help us out a little, it would mean a lot. Thanks, Keira and John. This is first child, she doesn’t have any siblings. I’ve noticed a lot of the poll mention sibling names, I guess it makes it easier to choose a name because you can pick by flow with sibling names as well. Sorry ;) Also, her middle name will be Grace, after grandmother.

We like Verity for our daughter's first name, for both the meaning and uniqueness, but we are struggling with a middle name. I love cacti/succulents and thought it would be neat to pick the name of a unique plant. Hoping for something different but still pronounceable and feminine. Any ideas?
Baby Name Genie:
Not to be prickly, but this cacti question is a thorny one. Let me sharpen my quill and take a stab at it. Name your daughter Verity Jade, if you don't want a few barbs thrown your way.
